VPX Carrier Cards

Acromag offers a full line of rugged OpenVPX™ carrier cards to deliver high-speed performance for data-intensive, high bandwidth applications.  Available in 3U or 6U formats these mezzanine carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. By inserting PMC or XMC industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors on the carrier, developers can now leverage hundreds of available function modules currently unavailable in a VPX platform.

Designed and manufactured in the USA these carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O expansion.
